Какое поразительное удовольствие, оказывается, получаешь, когда изучаешь язык для себя.
В школе и представить себе такого не могла.
Сейчас меня снова, как двадцать лет назад, сводит с ума "Властелин колец". В оригинале еще лучше!!! Так поэтично написано, просто невозможно. В меня не вмещается восторг, периодически откладываю книгу в сторону, подышать.

And again she looked at Faramir. 'No longer do I desire to be a queen', she said. Then Faramir laughed merrily.
’That is well,’ he said; ’for I am not a king. Yet I will wed with the White Lady of Rohan, if it be her will. And if she will, then let us cross the River and in happier days let us dwell in fair Ithilien and there make a garden. All things will grow with joy there, if the White Lady comes.‘”

Faramir says this to Frodo after they both agree they would not want to control or own the Ring.

`For myself,' said Faramir, 'I would see the White Tree in flower again in the courts of the kings, and the Silver Crown return, and Minas Tirith in peace: Minas Anor again as of old, full of light, high and fair, beautiful as a queen among other queens: not a mistress of many slaves, nay, not even a kind mistress of willing slaves. War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend: the city of the Men of Númenor; and I would have her loved for her memory, her ancientry, her beauty, and her present wisdom. Not feared, save as men may fear the dignity of a man, old and wise.
